The Paparoa Community Charitable Trust is organising a mid-winter gala community dinner on Saturday, July 22, to publicise its Paparoa Lifestyle Village project and “provide a burst of mid-winter cheer for the community.”
Updates and information about the village of 14 retirement units and 15 individual residential sections, now awaiting resource consent, will be presented at the event. This is the first of many events, as the trust is keen to spread awareness of the project.
The Rt Hon Sir Lockwood Smith and his wife Lady Alexandra will also be there and will talk about their diplomatic experiences after dinner.
The evening will conclude with an auction, including a weekend at a local luxury ‘Book a Bach’ property and a ‘Lions Labour’ offer. Trust chair Graham Taylor said that tickets are selling well and a professional caterer is organised for the three course meal, with choices.
“Brighten up your winter by forming a group and picking up your tickets from Skelton’s Drapery. Tickets will be limited and are $45 adult and $40 for Gold Card.”
The event is at the Paparoa Memorial Hall, on Paparoa Valley road. Dress is smart casual. A cash bar will be provided.
